Open Ancient Eyes
Label: Merkaba Music

Memories of futures past are found in the mystical multidimensional soundscapes and tribal journeys generated by Australia’s Kalya Scintilla. An ethnic fusion of electronica and lush healing vibrations give rise to meditative dubstep breakouts, but also chill into meditative paths of ascendant love rhythms, which makes for a well-rounded delightful dose of seductive sonic bliss.

Distant warbles of dubtastic goodness are chopped expertly into blissful bubbles of electronica and sizzled with splashes of multi-ethnic relish. Etheric vocals are found amid idiosyncratic wompy bass delicacies and a hyper surreal psychedelic undertow. After a 4 year wait, the English producer known as OTT, with help from a couple dozen or so musicians, has provided us with a wonderful new sonic adventure so we can all explore how to be fairchildren too.

Omnisquid
Label: CD Baby

Vascilating between intense Tool level prog metal, and ambient electronic glitches this truly IS the Omnisquid! Weaving a path of ever morphing grooves and rhythms occasionally popping into King Crismson level tinkering and tweaking on their guitars, lespecial delivers twists and turns a plenty, but not so many that the music suffers. Bristling with activity and inspiration there is much to absorb and observe here.

Label: Altar Records

Combining the ancient wisdom of Hindu Gods into psychedelic music isn’t just for anyone, but in the capable hands of world traveled musical veterans Eric Mandala and Joseph A. Ruel it becomes a treat for the ears. Utilizing ethnic instrumentation to bolster digital rhythms and chill-step approaches this duo from Canada tops their delicacies with sacred chants, mantras and tribal pulsations.

Label: Slurp Music

This 5 song EP has reinvigorated my love for the New Zealand born DJ, Opiuo! Offering a varied selection of his award winning electro funk styles and swampy bass beat approaches, it serves as a great launch for his summer US tour, specifically his appearance on 4/21 at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado which will feature an exclusive live performance with a 20-piece orchestral set, the Syzygy Orchestra.

Label: Slurp Music

I am not aware of any other electronic musicians that have added a live orchestra to their future funk compositions, but that is exactly what the New Zealand DJ known as Opiuo did at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater on 4/21/18, and results were/are amazing! Re-Interpreting and then respinning his songs so they blossomed into 7 wonderful movements that conjoined with the 20 piece Syzygy Orchestra is unique, invigorating and inspiring to hear and behold! Lucky for you he is performing a solo DJ set at the Majestic Theater in Madison, WI 10/18 with Sodown

Label: Interscope

What an album! These double platinum producing, Grammy winning pop icons deliver another masterpiece with several smash hits as well as several other songs (rounding out this 12 track release) that show off the evolution of their artistic diversity and depth, but not in the same predictable ways as their past releases. If you haven’t heard Natural, Bad Liar or Zero off this album, you will soon, as they are all destined to be classics!
